Lonnie purchased this House in 1967
Why Lonnie chose Lakehead
A beautiful family vacation house. Perfect as a family get-a-way or couples retreat. Secluded in the mountains among tall pines, sitting on one of California's largest reservoir lakes, that include cool caverns (after a patio-boat ride across the lake and a short bus ride!), sun-set cruise dinners done by a local business, swimming, fishing, hiking, Shasta Dam, many, many places to explore, yet not too far from the the city of Redding.

High expectations - Way better than expected!
The pictures don’t do this place justice! The views are amazing from everywhere, including the lower level. The beds were great!
We spent a lot of time on the balcony and by the pool. There is plenty of outdoor seating and tables to enjoy appetizers and drinks. The grill was a great addition, and we used it several times during our stay.
There is plenty of room for air matresses if needed. The top bunk is doable for adults, but a little tight.
The kitchen was well stocked and the hosts provided a lot of the little things that are often forgotten...plastic bags, napkins, etc.
The two dining room tables made group meals easy. In addition, having a large pantry to store all of our supplies and food made keeping the living areas clean and clear a breeze!
We’ll definitely be returning later this year!
What an amazing property. Gorgeous views. Simply stunning. Our group had a great vacation boating during the days and spending time at night together around the large tables playing games. The owners were wonderful to work with and the house is perfectly stocked. We hope to stay here again in the future
Enjoyable family vacation stay.
We had a very enjoyable 12 member family vacation at the Lakehead home. The five children especially enjoyed the pool. The lake view from the back porch was an enjoyable place to end the evening for the adults. The house was very well equiped and child friendly. The owner Lonnie was very responsive to any questions. The only change I would recommend is an 11:00 am departure instead of 10:00. With a large family it does take time to leave the home in good condition for minimum prepareation for next renter.
Best stay ever/will stay again
Beautiiful home with Beautiful view-hard to leave!
Beautiful lake front property for large group
Wow! What an amazing place! The home was just what we were looking for. We had a group of 15 people and the home fit us perfectly. The cove is private, quiet and safe since this is the only home located completely on the lake. Our kids were able to kayak, paddle board and jet ski from the house. Unfortunately the lake was too high to get our boat under the bridge and to the house from the marina; otherwise, it was perfect. The pool, hot tub and game room were huge hits as well. The home was very well stocked and the owners were great to work with. We will definitely return to this fantastic home!
The Shasta House was beautiful
We recently booked this property for a family reunion. It was wonderful! Everything we could have wanted was provided. The house was large & beautiful and the beds were comfortable. Our family especially enjoyed the pool area. Definitely will be back one of these days and would recommend if you are visiting the area.
Located a short drive north of the city of Redding, you'll find yourself in the Shasta-Trinity National Forrest with it's towering pines and seclusion. Our home is located in Lakehead CA on the north side of Shasta Lake. Located at the end of a road it sits on a acre lot overlooking Shasta Lake. You can explore this very large lake on your boat & be at Shasta Dam within 20 minutes. You can also be there by car within 25 minutes. You can even take a tour! The site really is magnificent! Shasta Lake is California's largest lake...it is actually a reservoir in which water is released from the Dam everyday. Although the water level at Shasta Lake decreases slowly over the summer, it's so large, you can still enjoy swimming, boating, water skiing, parasail , dive, fish. Our home sits on the edge of a cove on Shasta Lake. When lake level is approximately 17ft from crest, most watercraft will have clearance under the old bridge that "gates" the cove to the "back yard" of the house. No private dock allowed by law on Shasta Lake.. Lakehead does have marinas that have moors and boat launches, if that is what you prefer. Lakehead is situated roughly between Mt. Shasta, with it's mystic little shops & great dinning to it's spectacular winter snow skiing, and Redding with it's eclectic choices of food, entertainment and shopping. Lakehead is a great place to meet in the middle, for get-togethers or that fun camping in-the-forest feeling, but doing it a house with many amenities people love with plenty of small local eateries. Or create a cooking masterpiece at the house. Kitchen is stock with all cooking accoutrement - just bring food. Two great-rooms, four bedrooms - two upstairs, two down. Upstairs bedrooms have king beds with bathrooms attached. Downstairs bedrooms have queen beds. A built-in queen bunkbed sits just outside the bedrooms as well. Additional sitting/play area (it's a bit quiter on lower level). Full bathroom with shower & laundry are also on lower level - has it's own exits with spectacular views. Upstairs bathrooms: a tub/shower combo in one, large shower in the other. We also have a private pool, jacuzzi and gameroom in the garage. Home sits on large lot with plenty of parking.
The rate is $4000 a week
